View Full Version : upgrade caused system not to boot - full disk encryption

August 22nd, 2014, 09:38 AM

my laptop is now in a state that it no longer boots.

the installation was that of Ubuntu 14.04 using a full disk encryption.

while trying to upgrade - there was an error that suggested that my /boot was full

i removed a couple of the older kernel version to free up some space.

i followed that by upgrading the system as suggested by synapitic.

and after a successful upgrade (?)
the system is unbootable.

it is not requesting the full disk password as i have always found it to do.

any suggestions on how i can correct this issue.
as you can image all my data is locked and i can not use the laptop.

Thanks in advance for your assistance.

Hi guys

The disk is encrypted and i can see that its content is fine.

So the problem is with the Kernel and its options.

How can i setup the kernel to use the fully encrypted disk?

Could someone please post their boot menu file?
